of the northeast, it's now a recovery mission. and yesterday california military planes were loaded with utility vehicles ready to be shipped into new york. an army of some 50,000 utility workers from across the country, even canada, being deployed to the region to help in the massive project to restore power which will take weeks. three navy warships are anchored off the northeast coast to help with the relief effort. in new jersey, military trucks are being deployed to operate as polling places on election day in the hardest-hit communities still remain without power. now, the good news does trickle out slowly. today amtrak will begin offering limited service between new york city and boston. and new jersey transit will also start moving today with limited service. the new york subway system continues to make advances. the "m" train linking queens to manhattan just started running, but there are still no trains running below 34th street where half of manhattan remains in the dark. so the millions of new yorkers who depend on subways, they're now waiting in those long lines for buses. for those
another term, nancy pelosi of california may be planning to step down. began when pelosi moved to december 5th. where do these z new players fit in the balance of power and why does it matter? contributor jimmy williams is here to break it down for us. my man who was with me through the night for the insomniacs. all right. so elizabeth warren, a big emotional win for the democrats getting back that seat that was teddy kennedy's for so long. what does the new leadership role mean? >> understand how the senate works. when a freshman senator comes in, they don't have a leadership role. they may have a symbolish role. taking the seat back -- being against the banks. which is the new financial protection bureau. >> certainly, absolutely. question question becomes what will the role be in the senate. most freshman senators when they come in, they sit back on the back benches. they sit down, they listen, they come up with an expertise area whether it be immigration and taxes or whatever it is. and they learn as much as they can. and they give speeches when needed. and they keep quiet. that's what
in southern california. >> what did haley barbour say about jim jeffords in vermont? >> again, during this presidential process when i was asking olympia snowe or asking a candidate about olympia snowe, are you glad she's in your party? he wouldn't answer. >> right. >> and then we asked haley who said, "hell, yeah. i'm glad olympia snowe is in our party and i wish jim jeffords was, too." even on his most liberal day, jim jeffords was going to get elected more than anybody in vermont. >> do you think -- what's the time frame here? is it that the republican party has perhaps a year and a half to sort of figure out what direction they're going to head in? a year and a half before the leaders of the republican party go to the front window of the club that they belong to, open up the drapes and look out on main street and see the reality of life in america today? >> this happens all the time. i mean, i remember getting elected in 1994. you know, "u.s. news & world report" had a cover talking about the end of the democratic party. you remember 1980. >> yeah, yeah. >> people were saying the
of the fact just the whole women's thing and the way women now tend to be democrats. you see it in california. we have two senators who are women in washington state and new york, of course, you have a woman senator now and in the northeast. in fact, i think you've got 17 democratic women now, right? >> well, we do. we have -- we're going to have 20 women senators, which is incredible. the american public in this election, chris, sent us a binder full of women, and so we're excited to have this many women in the senate, and the women, as you know, are a cordial bunch across party lines. we have dinner every other month in the strom thur mon monday room which is somewhat ironic. >> no, he liked women. i understand he liked women. ja let's not go there, chris. but in any case i think what we know is that the american public wanted to see more problem solvers after this incredibly polarized election season. women tend to be problem solvers and i think that helped us as well as some of the messages that we were seeing from the other side. >> well, on that point -- >> this is a great opportunity f
new york, california, blue states. the states that get the gifts are the states that voted for mitt romney. >> professor, i guess i should also be consoling you specifically since you must have voted for mitt romney because you work at an elite academic institution and i believe you earn more than $30,000 a year. so you can't have voted for mr. free stuff. you must have voted for mitt romney. >> of course. i'm from michigan as well. i went to the same high school and his father was governor. so there's more damning evidence of my political pedigree. i think that what jonathan alter said is extremely important here. the very people who are talking about others being on the dole, no disrespect to the former republican leader, those who claim that people are not doing -- carrying their fair share, the very people who make these claims are the ones who receive the bounty. those are the people who disproportionately benefit from the laregess of the government. this kind of demonization of the other, younger people, african-americans, latinos and so on who got the gifts, no we didn't. who
